I think that this is the first plain enamel bin that I’ve come across – all the other black and white versions that we’ve sold have had writing on them. I’ve had ‘sugar’, ‘flour’ and ‘rice’ a few times (I once even had a ‘ghee’ tin!), but as far as I can remember this is the first bin that I’ve had with no writing at all, which I suppose makes it that much more adaptable in terms of where you can use it (you’re not just limited to the kitchen). As far as these bins go, the condition’s not bad at all. There are some chips in the enamel, which at some point look like they’ve been painted white, but the legs are still sturdy and the hinges and clasps are all in place.
A character-filled piece of enamelware that will make very attractive storage wherever you choose to use it!
